Reviews - What do customers think about Learning as Transformation: Critical Perspectives on a Theory in Progress (Jossey Bass Higher and Adult Education Series)?

understanding transformation  Apr 29, 2001
Jack Mezirow et al have provided an excellent resource book for helping us to change attitudes and tackle difficult situations.

As a LearningSupport Tutor in further education (16 years and over) the reviewer is often in contact with students who have challenging behaviour and finds herself in situations that require a shift in perspective, 'epistomology' and 'frame referencing'. This book provides the forum for doing the essential work. But it is not for the faint-hearted reader, neither is it light reading; this book is for thinkers: it's meanings are not always instantly accessible.

That said, for those who are serious about their profession, searching always for ways to improve their teaching, evaluation and reflection, this is the book to go for. Those readers who experience difficulty in accessing the academic language may benefit from discussions in the staff room and it is certainly a book that deserves studying on teacher-training courses.

Although the book is written with the adult learner in mind, teachers of younger teenagers may well find a lot of useful information here.

There is much food for thought in 'Learning as Transformation' and it is a book that can be read and digested like a series of good meals. This reviewer is doing just that and enjoying the experience.
